While maintaining a healthy diet is important, incorporating specific drinks into your routine is an amazing and simple way to support your body during this transition. It is the little daily habits we engage in that can move the needle dramatically over the long term. 3 powerful menopause-supportive drinks are  Green Tea, Passion Flower, and Turmeric all of which have been associated with health benefits for women experiencing menopause.


  1. Green Tea: A Sip of Natural Comfort:

Green tea is renowned for its numerous health benefits and has been found to potentially alleviate menopausal symptoms. Rich in antioxidants, green tea helps reduce oxidative stress and inflammation, which can contribute to symptoms like hot flashes and mood swings. Additionally, green tea contains catechins, compounds associated with improved bone density and heart health. Not to mention green tea supports our changing liver which shrinks in menopause!  Enjoy a cup of warm or iced green tea throughout the day to experience its soothing effects.

  1. Passion Flower Tea: Calming the Storm:

Passionflower tea is well-known for its calming properties, making it a popular choice for managing anxiety and insomnia, which can be heightened during menopause. This herbal tea has been traditionally used to promote relaxation and reduce restlessness. Sipping on passion flower tea before bedtime may improve sleep quality and alleviate feelings of anxiety. Enjoy the gentle and floral flavour of this tea as a part of your evening routine.

  1. Turmeric-Infused Beverages: A Natural Anti-inflammatory Aid:

Turmeric, a vibrant yellow spice, contains curcumin, a compound known for its potent anti-inflammatory properties. Menopause often brings about symptoms related to inflammation, such as joint pain and mood disturbances, hot flashes and brain fog. Incorporating turmeric-infused beverages into your daily routine, such as turmeric lattes or golden milk, may help alleviate inflammation and promote overall well-being. Combine turmeric with warm plant-based milk like oat milk or coconut milk, a dash of cinnamon, and a touch of honey providing a delicious and comforting drink.

During the menopausal transition, it is crucial to find ways to support your body and promote overall well-being. Incorporating soothing drinks like green tea, passion flower tea, and turmeric-infused beverages into your daily routine may offer potential benefits. Green tea's antioxidant properties, passion flower's calming effects, and turmeric's anti-inflammatory properties can provide relief from common menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, mood swings, anxiety, and inflammation. Embrace these refreshing and nourishing drinks as a part of your routine and approach the menopausal journey with a balanced and empowering mindset.
